FN Entries on other sites

Ok...just something I think was silly. I was having a bit of fun Googling my entries. "My FN name followed by 'FreakingNews'". Then I'd click on "More Sizes" at bottom of Google's thumbnail pics. This brought up sites that have "borrowed" from FN. So I was being entertained checking out these borrowers when I got a laugh at this one seemingly serious world travel site that used one of my entries for a story on the Eiffel Tower...but the pic they used of mine was a chop which combined Big Ben and the tower. Seriously?..Didn't they notice? Their article was straight forward about visiting this landmark...no obvious silliness. Well, I found a couple other blogs using this silly Eiffel tower in a seemingly serious article. Just wanted to share this. Maybe I am too easily amused.

This happens quite often, but with chops that could seriously be mistaken for real photos. Your chop was an obvious hoax job by photoshop - as you rightly said, how could they not notice? Post a link to the article and we'll check it out

This is the first site I laughed at:

Scroll down almost to the bottom to find the Eiffel Tower article.

This second blog is also focused on the tower, has a column of normal pics and again has my silly one in with all the legit ones.

Amazing, it is so obvious too.

Made the links clickable for you.
Amazing, maybe they thought this was some kind of special decoration for some event
